This exhibition about Modern Muses, is inspired by the limited edition MUSEA: A Book of Modern Muses, published by Condé Nast to celebrate modern muses. Each chapter explores modern-day muses through original artwork, conversations, photography and essays by Jefferson Hack, James Corner, Jane Goodall and Hans Ulrich Obrist among many others, across all areas from Art to Fashion, Nature to Food, AI to Play, Sound to Sustainability, and more.
Presenting talents and ideas from around the world, the exhibition encapsulates highlights from the art-and-design book, reflecting our founder Adrian Cheng’s ambition for K11 MUSEA and the world, to bring together muses in creativity, culture and innovation to connect and collide, and enrich the consumer’s daily life.
We challenge visitors to ponder and discover their own muses here.

American artist Calvin Marcus’s body of work, witty and with a sense of surreal humour, reflects his interest in artistic personas. On view at the Garage Event Space located on the B2 floor of K11 MUSEA, this exhibition showcases seven meticulously crafted wooden structures glowing in the dark. Each structure is in itself an exhibition in miniature, featuring another artist—Kelly Akashi, Sara Clendening, James Herman, Michael Williams, Ravi Jackson, and Ted Christensen respectively—or highlighting some scaled-down works of art or an architectural detail. The mini-exhibitions, with their lights on, offer an interesting perspective to look at the physical and institutional settings in which artists’ works are displayed, whilst inviting ruminations on what supports one’s artistic endeavour.
